    Cataloging the LEGO licenses

    I’ve updated the list to add The Flintstones, coming soon via LEGO Ideas.

    The best of the worst Lego Ideas

    I don’t get why you’d think the fact a folk art tradition goes back centuries makes you think it’s for tourists. Do you think Peruvian peoples were courting tourism 500 years ago? At any rate, it's true I can’t speak for the submitters, but I can speak for myself, and yes, I genuinely liked the project. I’d have been happy to have gotten an official set from it.

    This, absolutely.

    That’s fine, but that alone doesn’t warrant “lost faith last year when “Wonders of Peru” reached 10k”. That sounded like it was some sort of affront to the very idea of Ideas, which seems pretty unfair to me. If it’s not your cup of tea, that’s fine, but why take umbrage at other people deciding they like this perfectly well-constructed LEGO representation of a cultural item?

    And what’s wrong with a cultural thing?

    What was wrong with Wonders of Peru? That’s a great project. It was always a long shot to become a commercial set, sure, but it certainly wasn’t undeserving of success.

    10264 Corner Garage

    What about the thing at the far left, that looks like a 2x2 corner brick, right below the left side of the 1x6 plate? Is it really just a 2x2 corner brick? I’d have thought it surely existed in this color (for that matter, I’d have thought the same of the 1x6 plate and 1x6 brick...). Is it really new?

    10264 Corner Garage

    Detective’s Office is still available, both in Shop at Home and at my own store. And the possibility of either or both becoming unavailable when Corner Garage is released is why I qualified my statement thusly: (bolding again added for emphasis and clarity) I’m not saying (and wasn’t saying) it was definitely going to happen; I was noting it as a remarkable possibility. (I also personally wouldn’t use the phrase “long gone” to describe either of them even if they are indeed gone by the time Corner Garage comes out on January 1st, as it would have been only a little over a month at most, which I don’t consider a particularly long time, but I recognize that’s a personal appraisal, and YMMV.)

    10264 Corner Garage

    Because the Corner Garage is one additional one after the five I listed, and five plus one equals six. Yes, I’m well aware of the retirement of these two, as I thought was clear when I said this: (bolding, italicizing and underlining added for emphasis and clarity) I didn’t mean six in production, but six that are available at once (hence my use of the word “available”). Detective’s Office and Brick Bank May have either ceased production or be about to, but there’s still stock of both in the channel. My second-to-last sentence in that post should have made it clear I was talking about six modulars all being available - not just on the secondary market, but new, from LEGO, at MSRP - all at once:

    10264 Corner Garage

    That’s an opinion, but doesn’t really answer my question. I think an attempt to quantify the specific number of details in the midulars would find s comparable number of them in this one to the other buildings you’ve mentioned. Whether you like the details here is another matter, but I don’t think this set is lacking details.

    Who said anything about Ninjago buildings? I’m talking about the five modulars currently available: 1. Parisian Restaurant 2. Detective’s Office 3. Brick Bank 4. Assembly Square 5. Downtown Diner I don’t know why you thought I was talking about Ninjago stuff; I never mentioned any.

    Lacks details? How?

    10264 Corner Garage

    I like it! As with all the modulars, I see things I might like to mod and perhaps expand, but I think it’s a winner. I definitely want to see more of it. Right now, there are five modulars currently available at once, which I believe is a record. Depending upon how long it takes the currently-retiring Detective’s Office and Brick Bank to sell out, though, we could actually have six on shelves at once. Unreal!

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    That sort of thing happens all the time, of course. A current Star Wars battle pack (75206) features two specific, unique Jedi characters alongside two “generic” clone trooper army builders. A number of the Middle-Earth sets featured one or more unique characters in a mix of minifigures otherwise perfectly suited for army-building. I already have multiple Bennys from the first two years’ worth of LEGO cinema goodness (at least one of each boxed TLM set except MetalBeard’s Sea Cow, plus duplicates of both Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! and the Benny Fun Pack for LEGO Dimensions), and I’m not parting them out on BL even though I don’t really need that many Bennys, simply because I don’t want to break up the sets. I’m very much hoping we’ll get this “new old” helmet in those additional colors, myself.

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    Ahh, I see the two projects now - the Chemical Plant and the Dinosaurs Fossils Skeletons - Natural History Collection. I must have experienced some momentary site glitch. The next deadline should be early January. I’m not sure of the exact date, but I think around January 3rd.
